Two Planks and a Passion is an award-winning professional theatre company in residence at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts, offering exquisite outdoor productions in a spectacular setting.

Our mainstage is The Mountain and the Valley. A collaboration with HomeFirst Theatre and Two Planks and Passion Theatre. Adapted from the beloved novel by Ernest Buckler and set in this very region, The Mountain and the Valley examines how community makes a person who they are, and is both familiar and universal, beautiful, funny, and poignant. The Mountain and The Valley, by Governor General’s Award winning playwright Catherine Banks, adapted from the beloved novel by Ernest Buckler, is directed by Guillermo Verdecchia and a spoken word chorus directed by musical director Allen Cole.

It is the Annapolis Valley between the Great Wars and David Canaan, beloved grandson, son, brother, and twin to Anna is on the cusp of manhood. Brilliant, sensitive, observant and the pride of his community his future shines with promise. And yet at 33 he stands alone at the top of the South Mountain looking back at the miscommunications and the misunderstandings that have derailed his dreams. The Mountain and The Valley, by Governor General’s Award winning playwright Catherine Banks, adapted from the beloved novel by Ernest Buckler, asks how is it that such promise has not to come to pass and can we ever begin again?

A collaboration of HomeFirst Theatre and Two Planks and Passion Theatre, The Mountain and The Valley will premiere in the summer of 2024, at Ross Creek. This long awaited production, directed by renowned director and playwright Guillermo Verdeccia, will feature an all star cast of thirteen, a magnificent outdoor setting and a spoken word chorus directed by musical director Allen Cole.
